Wait before tuning, mileage?

Just curious how long you waited to tune your 6.7L?

I am sticking with H&S stuff, might upgrade to the mini maxx from the XRT but just curious how long I should wait if at all?

2-3,000 miles and you should be good to go. I've talked to a couple guys that tuned within 500 miles. I tuned after my first oil change, around 4500 miles.

You won't be disappointed!

Yes I finally found a truck I can live with without having to order one and wait. It doesn't have the heavy duty front end service suspension but has everything else I wanted.

Going to lift it a little and then add some goodies after some miles.

Looking forward to getting it.

I waited until 20K. Not because I was waiting for milage, but waiting on the tuner to prove to me reliable, because it was so new. They have been out long enough now. Wait until you feel comfortable with the truck, and it proves nothings wrong with it.

Well I picked it up today, didn't get the warranty but will more than likely get it later. Was minimal price difference on my end if I bought today or down the road. Will post pics later.
